Marina Alex tied for 6th after first round of U.S. Women's Amateur

By A. Boggs - Vanderbilt rising sophomore Marina Alex finished her first round of the U.S. Women's Amateur at the Old Warson Golf Club in St. Louis, Mo., with a one-under par 70, which puts her in a tie for sixth place. There are still golfers out on the course, one of which includes incoming freshman Anna Leigh Keith of Moultrie, Ga., who is at three-over par after her first nine holes.

Match play continues through the rest of today and Tuesday, with the best 64 players advancing to the first round of match play on Wednesday. The second and third rounds will take place on Thursday, the quarters Friday, the semifinals Saturday, and the 36-hole final on Sunday.

We'll post a complete recap when Keith finishes her round later this evening. You can follow all results here.
